I have been a big fan of Doctor Who since it’s revival in 2005 but was too young to have watched the original series. On this blog I shall be recording my thoughts on every story from 1963 onwards!
29: The Invasion
“You’re an evil man, Vaughn. You’re sadistic. You’re a megalomaniac You’re insane- I pity you. But if I get half a chance, I’ll kill you”
Format: 8 episodes, each 25 minutes long
Story: Aided by the head of a multi-national corporation, the cybermen attempt to invade Earth. It’s up to the Doctor, his companions and the newly formed UNIT team to stop them.
What I liked:
What I disliked:
Overall thoughts:A great story about a team out of their depth still managing to win against all the odds. The fact there was so few cybermen in the story is slightly frustrating but that meant when they did appear they were more scary. It’s a great story and it’s clear why the production team looked at this one when they re-formatted the programme.
Next Time: Crystal aliens in “The Krotons”.
